SamuelMaranto-01a.pngSamuel J. Maranto is an Investigative Researcher best known for his work on the Tinley Park Mass Sightings of 2004 and the Chicago O’Hare Gate C17 incident of 2006. These cases have been the features in a number of television specials and programs episodes throughout the world. The History Channel’s UFO Hunters episodes “Invasion Illinois & Aliens at the Airport”are two examples. Dateline NBC’s “10 Best UFO Encounters” was a major television network special that featured the video footage from the Tinley Park Mass sightings along with other well noted UFO accounts.

Little known correlations that have never been presented to the general public indicating possible structure in three different Illinois mass sightings. Video recording that clearly demonstrate something well beyond coincidence. Genuine Mass sightings like these offer valuable insights as well as volumes of data giving us a rare glimpse you’ll only experience … when the evidence speaks.

As a frequent guest to a variety of radio shows as well as a requested public speaker, Sam makes a point to cover key fundamental facts that unshakably illustrate the genuine nature of this phenomena.

Sam is the State Director of the Illinois State Chapter of the Mutual UFO Network, MUFON. Some of his latest engagements include the 2020 International UFO Congress where he gave the lecture: When the Evidence Speaks … Mass Sightings in the Heartland.

Show schedule will be updated soon.

And, BTW: This weekend's episode of After The Paracast features a special interview with Stephen Bassett as he views prospects for UFO disclosure in light of the creation of the Pentagon UAP Task Force, and how election results might impact that disclosure.

After The Paracast is available to subscribers of The Paracast+.
